. >> third, i think they are agreed on budget cuts but not which cuts. i think they are agreed now that big deal is dead so they will try to go for some small deal. i guess they're there but it's clear mitch mcconnell is concerned that the republicans in the house can't get anything through. >> well, then i don't think they're dead. your hopes of them all agreeing on the three things you named as you said, you don't know if it can get through the house. a house divided cannot stand for america, pat. richard, what is your reading? ? the republicans can't get it together and the people who may pay for this is the american public? >> before we get there reverend, i want to pick up on something pat said. if there were any kind of tax increase at all republicans would be finished. let's look at the polls. recent gallup polls suggest that only one in five american voters think that this deficit crisis needs to be dealt with, with spending cuts alone. in other words, the vast majority of voters want to see a mix. now you can debate where the mix should be between spending and revenues, between cut
've tried to emphasize is we have a unique opportunity to do something big. we have a chance to stabilize america's finances for a decade. for 15 years, or 20 years, if we're willing to seize the moment. now, what that would require would be some shared sacrifice, and a balanced approach that says we're going to make significant cuts in domestic spending, and i have already said i am willing to take down domestic spending to the lowest percentage of our overall economy since dwight eisenhower. it also requires cuts in defense spending. and i've said that in addition to the $400 billion that we've already cut from the defense spending we're willing to look for hundreds of billions more. it would require us taking on health care spending. and that includes looking at medicare and finding ways that we can stabilize the system so that it is available, not just for this generation, but for future generations. and it would require revenues. it would require, even as we're asking the person who needs a student loan or the senior citizen or, you know, people -- veterans who are trying to get by o
's to resume their position because there's an answer to the big question. >> lilia luciano on verdict watch for us in orlando. thank you so much. >>> i want to bring in our legal panel to talk about deliberations and which side did a better job of proving its case. we have diane dimond and former prosecutor wendy murphy on the right side of your screen. thanks to both of you for joining us today. >> sure. >> before we get started, i want to play a bite from defense lawyer jose baez who on monday raised the issue of reasonable doubt, telling the jury they have it. take a listen. >> these are the facts that you have heard. and these are the facts that prove beyond a reasonable doubt that casey anthony is guilty of murder in the first degree. reasonable doubt lives here. it's throughout the case. it's right here. it's with these individuals. it's with those individuals. it's everywhere. you can't trust this evidence. you can't. >> all right. so we started with the prosecutor first. wendy, let me start with you. did the prosecution remove any reasonable doubt? many say that jose baez may have a
of different ways. by the way, this is no big secret, it's not like i'm telling you something other people can't figure out very easily. but if you have one phone call another phone it creates a busy line. if you use a third phone to call in, it goes directly to the voice mail and if you don't have a pin, it's very easy to get somebody's voice mail. >> we talked about at&t. how vulnerable are they to getting hacked and do we need to make pin numbers mandatory in order to keep all of our phones safe? >> i think that's something to think about. right now the onus is on the consumer, it's on us to be proactive with our mobile devices to put that pin on there. you think of your smartphone these days. it's really like a small laptop. in my face it's almost as big as a laptop. but you store so much personal information on there that really the companies should be doing more for users, i would say, because they're such an extension of ourselves. because there's such critical information on there. you know, i don't want to single out at&t too much because all of the wireless carriers are aware that th
guys to protect the fat guys and corporate jets and big super rich. you're expendable now, crack thinkers. don't you understand? they play you against the poor and you're skpentable now. let those guys handle it. they got to protect the big guys. >> now know, that is coming from john mccain whose campaign might be compared to custard, except custer's came out better than mccain's did. in 2012 a conservative will be elected so i think that will speak for itself. his his brand was she lacks in 2007 within 2008. mine won the house of representative by record numbers in 2010. >> yeah, but now your brand of conservative is told, get your butts in line. don't get too big for yourself. because you've done your job. you're saving the corporate jet guys. you're closing in making sure to protect the loops holes. now just shut up and let us handle it, we've got movies it watch. thank you judson phillips. thank you for being here with me. >> thank you for having me. >> hosts of the bill press show on sirius radio, gentlemen, it is quite interesting, looks like mr. boehner is trying to get a
democrats are calling for a roll back for tax benefits for wealthy americans, big corporations. republicans essentially saying, they can't support anything that looks like a tax hike. so we expect the president to come forward in his remarks today and resume his calls for a big deal. he's going to say now is the time to seize the moment and we're going to have to accept some political pain on both sides. that's something that we've heard him say before. political pain for the democrats would be coming to the table over entitlement reforms, in terms of social security, medicare, and, again, for the republicans, political pain might mean tax revenues. so that's what we expect him to say, chris. he's going to say that they're going to continue to talk until they get a deal done. as you know, there's that august 2nd deadline looming large. a lot of lawmakers want to see a deal within the next ten days so that that deal can be scored by the do and sold to both houses of congress. chris? >> thank you very much, kristin. let's go to new york and luke russert, coverage of capitol hill.
to raise the debt ceiling. everybody fr everyone agrees. this is big for the republicans. never done before with a long-term budget plan to bring down the deficit. now everybody agrees also there has to be a balanced approach. they agree to $1.6 trillion in cuts and what the president is saying is there's $400 billion in tax subsidies. tax give ways, as al you mentioned, tot hedge fund managers, that we can no longer afford. now if republicans don't buy that, as david brooks said nothing in the new york times, they are idiots. they don't know how to govern. they won. they ought to take this deal. >> mr. brooks, conservative columnists, is saying come on. you are marginalizing yourself. can't even you even hear from your own people that ideal logically agreed with the republican line. >> well, look, reverend sharpton, you showed some polls a minute ago that showed 70 or 8 30ers don't agree with republican owns this or that or the other thing. if the republicans are standing up for their convictions and beliefs against the tide of public opinion, it may be political courage an political decis
'm thomas roberts. rupert murdoch will testify at parliament tomorrow, this is the big headline, all over the phone hacking scandal that's rocking his media scandal. meanwhile there was a new arrest of a top exec over the weekend, and now the head of scotland yard and his assistant are resigning. if you're keeping score so far, there have been three high-profile resignations, ten arrests and it is not over yet. jim maceda is live in london to bring us up to speed on this. jim, good morning. >> reporter: hi there, thomas. make that four high profile resignations. just a couple of hours ago scotland yard's number two, john yates, also resigned under increasing, extraordinary, really, pressure. that on the heels on his boss's resignation last night. commissioner paul stevenson, he was the head of scotland yard. he, if you will, fell on his sword and said that he could not in good conscience continue with all the challenges to keep the peace in great britain as he and specifically his relationship with the murdock media empire became such a focus of attention. he was calling it a major distra
delays the big vote indicating he does not have votes to pass it. it all raises the big question, has the tea party taken control of boehner's house? >>> plus, wouldn't you love to know what mr. economy thinks about all this? too bad. because mr. romney is not talking. how's that for leadership. >>> and waiting with wait until you meet the latest extremist to log on to perry's prayer route. i'm al sharpton. breaking news. boehner abruptly delayed a make or break vote on his own debt plan. the speaker frantically been trying to whip up support from tea party republicans all day long. it is an indication that he simply does not have the votes to pass his plan. it is unclear when the vote will happen. the fear here would be a stunning setback for his leadership and for the g oo p establishment as it battles with party members. joining me is nbc's luke russell live on capitol hill. luke, can you tell us what is happening here? >> good evening reverend al. an alarming piece of news that came to us about 15 minutes ago. democratic aides received word from the republican floor staff and in f
that would have included up to a trillion dollars in new revenue. it seems like the republicans talk a big game about solving the nation's problem. but they are really only interested in one thing, that's winning back the white house. mitch mcconnell said this on fox news. >> the most important thing we want to achieve is for president obama to be a one-term president. >> that is true. that's my single most important political goal along with every active republican in the country. >> joining me now, is the independent senator from vermont, senator bernie sanders. senator, thank you for being here tonight. how do you explain the republicans unwillingness to compromise to get the big deal that they said they wanted, to put everything on the table. the president said fine now they back down. >> what they said is they would like everything on the table. so long as it means cuts to social security, medicare, medicaid, the needs of our children, and the environment. all of that is on the table. but if you asked billion airs it start paying a little bit more in taxes or if you do away with loop
is a big point of concern here. nancy pelosi was very adamant yesterday, saying that the republican caucus would not accept any deal that would cut medicare, cut social security. and remember, they're most likely going to need democratic votes to get this across the finish line because we're expecting any type of deal to extend the nation's debt limit will get a lot of republican defection. >> we just got the two-minute warning. we saw some activity from one of the staffers coming out to put president obama's notes at that podium. so i want to keep you with me right now to talk about what can we expect with the president telling everyone they need to stay in town, not go home, there's going to be work over the weekend, and that they're going to be in session next week trying to hammer this out? >> they're going to be in session next week. and we also got word the house will stay in session july 18th. essentially what you're seeing now, thomas, is some of it's political show, obviously, when people have to work on sunday that sends a message to the american people, you're having your day of
>>> the big divide. congressional leaders return to the negotiating table in a few hours trying to hammer out a deal. the two sides farther apart than they've ever been. the question is, if not now, when will a deal happen? >>> the extreme heat is the number one killer in the u.s. claiming more lives than tornados, floods, even hurricanes. how bad things are getting across the country right now. >>> praying gay away. the secret videotape involving presidential candidate michele bachmann and her husband's clinic. does their business claim to have a cure for homosexuality? calling rupert murdoch, the media magnate and his son have been called before parliament to explain the phone-tapping scandal that could bring them down. >>> i'm thomas roberts. we get to president obama preparing for another round of debt talks with congressional leaders as the clock continues to tick. speaker boehner reenforced his party's message and put pressure on the president this morning. take a listen. >> this debt limit increase is his problem. i think it's time for him to lead by putting his plan on t
and angry ever since they heard the verdict. >> lilia, thank you. we want to get to the big questions of what is next for casey anthony. we want to bring in our legal team. i'm joined by veteran criminal trial lawyer, ricky, and wendy murphy, former prosecutor. i know we have a lot to talk about. wendy, what is your reaction, the initial reaction to what the judge was able to do? because according to everyone that i have talked to, he threw the book at her, at least the book that he was given to the jury. >> it was a paper back but a book nonetheless. he gave her the max. no question. why he chose to do that, my sense is, although judges may never admit this, when there is a mob outside and they are angry and they believe something happened to this child, even though she's acquitted, when the public feels like the justice system failed, the judge will do what needs to be done to keep things calm. let's say judge perry is right, that she will have at most one more month behind the bars, or at least a few weeks, it allows this noise to calm down. >> do you agree with ricky, that it allo
to agree on something balanced as long as it's big. in the house r there are republicans ideologically opposed to anything that increases revenue. now all the government deficit projections are based on the idea bush tax cuts expire for everyone, according to current statute, the end of next year. if you regard not only any change in the law that reduces the deficit as unacceptable but any failure to change the law is also unacceptable, then it's going to be very hard to pass anything through the house other than perhaps the mcconnell plan, without the savings in it. >> we're hearing from harry reid using the phrase, "time is of the essence," hearing that over and over again and taking us to the brink. do you get the feeling we are actually inching any closer to clenching a deal? >> i think the mcconnell proposal, with some savings we can all agree to, may very well end up being the package. it's very important to the president we have a 3.5, 4$4.5 trillion package. woe may not in this short time agree to more than a $5 million down payment and vague creation of commission goals, state
overboard, does he not know history? just because social media was so big in this trial, it's the trial of the century only because of social media. we've done this before. it's our culture. it's what happened. i'm very surprised by his comments. very surprised. >> thank you so much for joining us. appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> switching gears now to politics. president obama says when it comes to the national debt, the time to start making long-term solutions is now. the president appeared in the white house briefing room yesterday and invited leaders from both parties to a meeting tomorrow for the next step toward an agreement. >> i don't think the american people here sent us here to avoid tough problems. it's, in fact, what drives them nuts about washington. when both parties simply take the path of least resistance. and i don't want to do that here. i believe that right now we've got a unique opportunity to do something big. >> nbc's kristen welker on the north lawn this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, jeff. jay carney just wrapped up a news conference here and
. >>> now to two big stories back here at home coming to us from the white house. a big number for president obama, and we're not talking about the debt here. $86 million was just raised between the dnc and his re-election team. we're going to talk more about that coming up later in the show. meanwhile this afternoon, the president wants to bring congress closer to this massive debt deal. but the meeting may include more discussion on a republican backup plan. minority leader mitch mcconnell has a fallback option, giving the president authority, and the full responsibility, to raise the debt ceiling $2.5 trillion in three increments. he put pressure on the white house today. take a listen. >> we'll sign legislation by the president that requires him to propose spending cuts greater than the debt limit he requests, make the president show in black and white the specific cuts he claims to support. if he refuses he'll have to raise the debt ceiling on his own. >> nbc's mike viqueira is live for us on the white house on the north lawn. good morning. >> good morning. >> the president still stress
, use what we know are good skills at lying, erase her past or going to take a big payday although there is option three which is the money piling up in her account for men who for whatever reason, motives unknown seem to want to take care of her so she does have fans. i don't know if you saw the reports she does have fans. >> she has sponsors. >> sponsors is a polite way to put it. >> when we talk about the fact that she has money making potential to come to talk about the ordeal she went through, isn't it also a scarlet letter put on whatever organization decides to pay this woman? >> absolutely. when the adult entertainment industry, when triple x entertainers are saying our customers can't stand to have you involved with us, it's hard for a main stream organization to get behind her. >> tony what about the logistics for sunday? the reporting i've been hearing out of orange county florida they're not able to protect her other than if she were to call 911 and needed help they're not able to provide body guards or any services to her safety. >> there will probably be people waitin
talk a big game. they say the president is losing support. they say he lost his touch. they say he is done in 2012. really? i don't think so. he is showing them the money in a big way. bandoned racetracks in america today. automotive performance is gone. and all we have left are fallen leaves and broken dreams. oh. wait a second. that is a dodge durango. looks like american performance is doing just fine. ♪ carry on. ♪ carry on. ♪ going to the bank without going to the bank... that's a step forward. with chase quickdeposit on your smartphone, you just snap a picture, hit send and done. chase quickdeposit. take a step forward and chase what matters. ♪ we just keep on keepin' on ♪ ♪ keep on >>> the republicans are in the debt talks, right? there is always the 2012, right? wrong. they are getting trounced too. today the obama campaign announced it raised more than $47 million this quarter. that's in addition to $38 million the president raised for the democratic party. it is also more than the entire republican field combined. and all that talk that is grass root base is d
to the raise the ceiling between 2009 and today, and maybe beyond. so the spending part is a real big issue for a lot of american people. >> isn't it also the issue revenue, michael, they're not just talking about spending. they were talking about revenue when reid said, okay, fine, to the chagrin of some of es, said i'll take revenue off the table. >> what does that tell you, reverend? then you say no, we don't want to do that. >> but what does that tell you? the president has been all over the place without a plan since the beginning of is the year. the fact of the matter is at one point he wanted a clean debt bill, then was willing to accept one. at one point think say we want taxes, and then reid puts out a plan that, yeah, we'll do that. the only consistent argument that has been made is made by republicans saying no to the spending. >> no if it's reid, no if it's boehner, i mean -- >> where it gets back to the plan -- he'll sign it. >> michael, i don't understand how, in the face of the data of the american people is it that the republicans are tone-deaf or just don't care? >> i don't
bachmann's job performance. >>> and rush limbaugh, hot air. hits a new high. his latest attack on big government is our con job of the day. >>> welcome to the show, i'm al sharpton. tonight's lead, are we closer to a deal or disaster? president obama and house speaker john boehner may be nearing a deal for a new grand bargain on debt limit. the president is meeting with democrats right now at the white house. presumably to talk about the deal. but any agreement would have to get past the tea party republicans in the house. and democrats say, they have a problem. >> the loudest shrillest voices from the republican party are not leaders but tea party extremists. >> they group of ideal ogs have grabbed the reigns and refuse to let go. it is the group who alone wants to drive the car off the cliff. >> but now, even boehner is saying republicans must compromise. >> i believe congress must act before august 2nd and i hope we are prepared to do that. at the end of the day, we have v a responsibility to act. >>> if the united states of america's debt rating gets downgraded, every interest rat

a long way. there's a big difference between requiring higher co-payments for a wealthy medicare recipients than saying everybody in medicare will pay $6500 more, which is the ryan plan. but president went that distance. and i think boehner went back it his caucus. he couldn't get the support. and so the speaker has now become a mouth piece for the tea party. and you're right and dana's right, i think in the end there has to be a deal, maybe there won't be, there has to be a deal, but it will come at the very last second. >> president may have said, let me throw it all on the table. let me rising everything. let me, as he said, show tough leadership. and they still wouldn't do it and maybe it was a chess move to show no matter what, this is about trying to bring a president down than to lift a nation up. could that have been the strategy, dana? >> you know, well, look, the president did give -- how much more could he have done? he gave the republicans everything they were looking for with the exception of saying, hey, come on, give me some face-saving gesture here. give me someth
holidays of the year. more politics ahead with cenk uygur. >> big banks, big money. republicans aren't even pretending to root for the little guy any more. tonight, the gop is brazen in their efforts to protect the rich. now long can this party go on before it implodes? >>> minnesota democratic governor shows how you fight back against republicans. do we have a new progressive hero? >>> plus the dominique strauss-kahn trial falls apart. >>> does fox news start in the nix yop white house? we have the amazing report straight from the nixon library. >>> welcome to the show, everybody. i'm roo i'm cenk uygur. we have an awesome show tonight. >>> all right, we are the party of the rich. guys came out and said you are for corporate jets, oil subsidies were for the rich. they basically came out and said yes. look at them defending all those programs right here. >> the president is singling out expensive airplanes is not the folk usts issue we are debating here. >> you see the most ugly devicive press conference i think i have ever seen from a president. offered no solutions. other than let's tax r
cuts and big structural change but something smaller more likely to help the country limp bat of the deadline and then maybe start talks for a broerd change for social programs and the tax base. but this is a dire circumstance because there is so much hope about the cooperation between the speaker,er ek cantor and the president, and geithner. a serious impasse. the president will be able to tell us more when he comes to the microphone. i was told the president received a phone call within the last half hour or so and hill leaders just hearing about it today as well. and a lengthy letter going out to house colleagues saying there was never a deal, it was never close and they are breaking this off. >> this could also be speaker boehner feeling the pressure of the tea party. >> certainly. >> -- caucus in the house. and clearly if he is saying that gang of six proposal, we certainly haven't confirmed it, this could be him having to bow to pressure in his own caucus from some of tea party freshmen and the like. >> everybody move could be looked at through a political lens. this cou
big things done, we can -- washington can still get big things done. this is about continuing to have a strong economy and continuing to compromise and take maybe a couple chapters out of tip o'neil, bob michael, ronald reagan, president clinton, people that have served in this town with distinction and gotten big things done through compromise. >> jay? >> some house republicans said that they've already compromised and that's what the boehner bill is, it is a compromise. >> well, i'm going to let jay -- >> oh, come on! >> i'm going to let jay do his job here. i'm not here to take his job. i'm here to try and put forth a message that in one of the highest unemployment sectors in the country, where we have friends and neighbors all over the country that are out of work during the construction season, they ought to go back to work. they shouldn't be held hostage. these projects shouldn't be held hostage, and we have 4,000 faa employees through no -- hardworking people that come to work every day and do their jobs. >> can you explain what the bottleneck is on the faa bill, from your pers
doing some of the things you have seen in washington in a long time which is a big deal. >> i have to leave it there, luke. >> okay. sounds good. >> thank you so much. and check out that pizza for me. maybe he is sticking his neck out for the pizza. >> all right wp take care. >> joining me now former pennsylvania governor ed rendell now nbc news political analyst and bob shrum at new york university, thank both of you for being with us tonight. i mean, it seems to me, aside from the fact that this is dead on arrival at the u.s. senate according to senator reid and dead on arrival in fact, the move this all the way now to where we are talking about, the balance budget amendment has to be passed through both houses and states have to ratify it. i mean, this governor ren dell is gone from bad to worse. >> it is an embarrassment. i mean, this bill is an embarrassme embarrassment. they couldn't have the second debt limit raised even if they wanted to. it is an absolute embarrassment. i think speaker boehner might have been better biting the bullet and losing on a semi reasonable plan. b

its act together? >> undoubtedly washington is broken. the big problem, though, is that you have two sides who are still way, way far apart, and the clock is sticking. i mean, we have to have an agreement by tuesday, or interest rates not only for the federal government, but really for average people with regard to auto loans, variable rather mortgages, everything else, start going up. the possibility, thomas, is those interest rates could go up very, very dramatically. that will bring the economy to a screeching halt. that would mean that the jobs crisis we have right now would become even larger. nobody wants that, or at least they say they don't want that, but after listening to a lot of the pontifications last night, i'm not sure. >> this is a clip from the president's address last evening, describing what government is like. take a listen. >> we can't allow the american people to become collateral damage to washington's political warfare. the american people may have voted for divided government, but they didn't vote for a dysfunctional government. >> certainly most of us think
